“If only”, unchangeable.
Much time ruing “if only”.
“If only” is the response to regret or remorse.
Too much time spent on “if only”.

God. Merciful and gracious.
Over and over again.

Jesus stated: If you love Me, then you will keep my commandments.
Jesus stated: My commandments are not burdensome.
If love, then obedience.
If no love “If then” is haunting.
“If only”. “If then”.
Both have value.
